I stayed in this hotel in May 2015, in an executive room. The room was huge, with plenty of space for a small family rather than just me. There was complimentary orange juice and a chocolate bar in the room. The room was very tidy and the bathroom spotless. On check in the member of staff wasn't very helpful (or... More

Hotel well sited for those travelling North with comfortable, well appointed rooms and the normal things that one expects from Holiday Inn. The staff,particularly on the front desk are worthy of praise. I had the misfortune of a health issue on checking in and they could not do enough to help. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 2 nights, whilst up visiting family in Darlington. They catered for us brilliantly as we had a new born with us. The family room was massive. Nothing was an issue and the food was great too. Really nice. Thank you.

It's a holiday inn so you know what you are getting, location suited me it's easy to find just off the A1. Staff helpful, breakfast was ok but I arrived when it was busy and service was a bit slow.

I have passed this hotel thousands of times and finally I stayed there. The building is fabulous and the location is historic. However if it is a hot night and you want to open a window it is noisy. Great staff and wonderful location.

Met girlfriend for lunch as half between Penrith and Wetherby. Lovely entrance lobby and helpful receptionist. Two hours free parking once you've registered your numberplate at reception. Lunch was delicious, Angus Beef Burger with fries and salad. Well presented. Good value for money. Thoroughly recommend.
